“Thank You Love” “…yes, I said, everything in life is uncertain, and it speaks the same.” All human energy comes from that one thought. All the pain that we bear and the joys that we celebrate are the results of our thoughts at any moment. Strange isn’t it? When Akshita was making her choices, Rayan made his. He refused to get over her and chose to own her absence in his heart and mind . Thank You Love describes how sitting on the floor in silence changed the world of “Rayan”. He realized that love is not something that happens between two people, instead it’s an enduring quality within people. He realized that love is not something that you do, but is the way you are. He re-moulds one of the most important event of his life into a spark, re-channelizes it and heads towards something that would later change the course of his life.

MY REVIEW :
“Thank You Love”, a book by Ayush Gupta is basically a story about teenager love. The story is about a boy Rayan who is in love. The story begins when Rayan meet a stranger and shares with the stranger the entire story of his life. Falling in love and then break up are a part of nowadays teenagers’ life. Starting with the cover, I did not liked it at first look. But when I completed reading the whole book,I understood why this cover and it was perfect matching with the theme and the story line. The prologue of the story was interesting. Initially, while reading the first few pages, the book sounds interesting. But at many parts I found, the book was going away from the path. Rayan was a grown up man but the way he takes his life, he behaves everytime doesn’t seems to be good. He sometimes behave like total dumb who is as if not understanding what is going around him. Any person when falls in love sounds happy and dancing all over. But the word, ” Break up”, breaks that same person. Isn’t it ?
The same was with Rayan. He was in love with Akshita and they were like those bollywood couple in the starting days. But when Akshita shifted to Bangalore, there was a huge change in her behaviour. She had started avoiding Rayan and even if she would receive his calls,she would just shout or give a lame execuse for not talking to him. Rayan was doing his best from his side. No matter how much Akshita shouted or ignored him,he would call and message her. Akshita chose her friends over her love.
I personally liked the character of Rayan mother. She did not behave like a typical Indian mother who would start shouting knowing that their kid was in love. She made Rayan understand the bitter truth. But it is rightly said, Love is blind. So was with Rayan. I hated Rayan character the most when her mother operation was going to happen. How can you choose your love over your mother ? When your mother is suffering and wanting her kids the most. The stupid Rayan was sitting in a corner adding more tension to her sister who was managing both the mother and her brother. In the mid pages, I really did not found any thing interesting. But moving towards the last few pages, the book again found it flow. One comes to know about benefits of meditation and also comes to know about various chakras. Riya and Shivai characters was also potrayed well. We accept people death then why not can we accept heart breaks. We should accept and never think of ending our lifes. The ending part teaches us how to fight with our problems and how to heal our pain. How to be strong and how to be happy.
Overall the book was a good one time read.The language of the book was easy to understand but the book needed had error at few places.The person who has just gone through a break up and feels like their life should end now, should surely read this book.
